Hello everybody,
I'm  Luca Tringali, and I want to propose an idea I had some days ago. 
First of all think about the fact that in a near future the main operations 
will be done using cloud services, also by common users. This means we need to 
reinvent many applications as web-based ones. For this reason I thought about a 
version of  KDE built as web application: I started programming with SVG and 
Javascript (and HTML5, obiously), and it's great. I also found that a 
programmer wrote an entire toolkit (www.carto.net) with SVG+JS, and it's 
working really fine.
You can find my work here:
I called the project "Stibium" (for some other informations give a look at the 
file about.html or simply click on the blinking KDE logo at the login screen).
Actually it's just a draft, but some things work: for example, I started 
writing an implementation for UbuntuOne APIs, and if you have an UbunuOne 
account, you can login into Stibium and open the filemanager clicking on the 
KDE logo. And I'm also working on a good menu.
Theorically it can be estended easily writing applications (I'm working on a 
file manager, a mediaplayer, and a document visualizer): since a window is 
created with a big iframe element, an application is just a web document (you 
can use any programming language, but I strongly recommend SVG+JS).

It needs a server with PHP and OAuth. As client, I think Firefox is the better 
option (because webKit has some troubles with the iframe).

So, I wanted to know what do you think about this project, and if it could be 
possible to create a repository on the official KDE playground, so someone else 
can help me programming.
If you have any doubt, please ask me.

Luca Tringali
